Born in Bronx NYC, USA 1963 to a mother from the Holy Land and an Italian American father from Brooklyn New York, Punish considers his nationality as the whole world. A self-declared global citizen pledging allegiance to the earth and everyone on it, Punish reaches out to all mankind for peace, harmony and justice.

Educated at the University of Nevada Las Vegas in the USA and within the California State University system, Punish knew business well and spent his early adulthood chasing green checks and the “American Dream”. Feeling misled and empty, in the mid-90s, Punish checked out of the material world and into the realm of reason, enlightenment and humanity and he’s never looked back.

In the so-called third world, Punish chose to work with underprivileged communities where he currently lives donating his time with kids sports and other community activities that add value to the overall global tribe.

Married for over 30 years with grown children and a grand kids, Punish is no longer at war with the world but a family man who lives in peace on a dirt road with chickens. Through his music, writings, and community activities, Punish continues his fight for global justice, human dignity, and respect.

So if you’re a fan of the common man; a passionate person and activist, get back on the Punish band wagon. Just remember to jump when it’s looking like he’s driving it off the cliff again!  Just sayin’
